Hundreds of California Lemon Festival attendees passed through the electric vehicle car show during our National Drive Electric Week celebration in Goleta at the 2017 California Lemon Festival. At least 75 festival-goers stopped to talk with the local EV owners who displayed their cars at the event, including Santa Barbara City Councilmember and proud Nissan LEAF owner Jason Dominguez. Staff from Community Environmental Council and the Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District shared information about rebates and incentives for plug-in electric vehicles. Joel Levin, the Executive Director of Plug-in America, also joined us to share information about their organization and the benefits of cleaner plug-in electric vehicles.
